Lawrence Schiller’s life has followed a larger trajectory than most and this summer will be no exception. Starting out as a successful photojournalist with Look, Life, Paris Match and more, Schiller made a name for himself with exclusive photographs of Marilyn Monroe, many taken on the set of her unfinished last film, George Cukor’s Something’s Got To Give (1962). He also photographed some of the most iconic figures of the 1960s, from Lee Harvey Oswald, Robert F. Kennedy, Muhammad Ali to Paul Newman and Robert Redford. He is a five-time New York Times bestselling author and award winning film producer, director and screenwriter; his collaborations include the Pulitzer Prize-winning book with Norman Mailer, The Executioner’s Song. He’s won five Emmys and a feature-length documentary he directed won an Oscar. He also founded the Norman Mailer Center and Writer’s Colony in Provincetown, Massachusetts.
